How to make PNG instead of JPG with "make unique texture " function?


#2

Change the export type when you export it.


#3

No option for that; I exported by photoshop bridge “edit texture image in external editor” [and this is pure gold option] but I can’t change, file extend :[ , it’s always JPG


#4

You can export the texture as a png. Save it locally and then edit it.


#5

long process


#6

Alright. Then the answer is no.


#7

no hacks? this is hard-coded .jpg extension ? Thanks anyway; I need to look on my own then;


#8

If there was an option to change it, you’d see an Options button or be prompted to choose a file type as you are when you export a texture image.

NO, but SU doesn’t convert images…

if you start with a png, SU uses a png…

you can test this by importing a new texture png, apply it, make_unique and then edit it…

it remains a png throughout…

Once you have a set of textured materials you can use a simple script to export texture files for all of them in one go,
The files can all be made as PNGs if so desired - even it they are currently JPGs.

A ‘fast-texture-writer’ is needed - e.g.
